Working with fabric or fiber most of her life Ann continues to explore the possibilities. Ann’s art quilts have been published and have traveled Internationally. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows. Ann has presented lectures/talks and trunk shows, has taught and on occasion still teaches live classes. She enjoys making videos lessons and demos for her YouTube channel in hopes of encouraging others to give quilting, fiber art, and mixed media a try. Ann admires knitting and crochet, and though she can’t knit and can only crochet a chain stitch, she’s discovered other ways to use yarn!

Pieces from my Photograph on Fiber series. Many on exhibit at Mission Trails Regional Park now through Feb. 8, 2013.
The fiber pieces may be hand painted whole cloths, patchwork or a combination of techniques. They may have added surface detailing, hand and/or machine stitching and quilting. Photographs are face mounted to acrylic and then mounted to, but “float” above, the fiber.

I’m glad to have contributed to the AAQI, and will continue to support them to the end. I hope you will join me in helping them reach their goal of one million dollars before the end of 2013. Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilts can be purchased here, or you can donate your own small quilt here.
